IGBP-DIS soil data set for pedotransfer function development
Entry ID: ISRIC_IGBP-DIS-PTFset

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This uniform soil data set for the development of pedotransfer functions was developed at the request of the Global Soil Data Task (GSDT) of the Data and Information System (DIS) of the International Geosphere Biosphere Programme (IGBP).

The necessary chemical and physical soil data have been derived from ISRIC's Soil Information System (ISIS) and the soil CD-ROM of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA-NRCS). Analytical data were clustered into functional groups based on soil textural class (FAO) and calculated activity of the clay size minerals. Samples from organic and allophanic soils were flagged as separate categories. The file contain analytical data for 131,472 soil samples, originating from 20,920 profiles. Being based on available data, there are several gaps in the measured data.
